Three-star Port Neches-Groves (TX) offensive lineman Jackson Christian announced on his X account on May 13 that he committed to Texas football. Christian is the first offensive lineman to commit to Kyle Flood and Texas in the 2025 class.

3-Star OL Jackson Christian commits to Texas football over Texas A&M

He committed to Texas over offers from the Texas A&M Aggies, SMU Mustangs, Texas Tech Red Raiders, and Baylor Bears, among many other FBS schools.

This commitment comes just a few weeks after Christian made an unofficial visit to Texas for spring practice on April 13. He made a subsequent trip to Texas unofficially later that same week for another spring practice on April 16.

Christian told Inside Texas he liked the "atmosphere" and "energy" on campus when he visited Texas for spring practice last month.

"There was a lot of energy. I can see myself playing here and going here. We got to see the dorms and everything, they’re pretty nice. How Kyle Flood coaches is a big thing, and Steve Sarkisian."

Flood was one of the first Power Five coaches who identified the talent and potential in Christian. He was the first coach from the Power Five to offer Christian last summer. Texas offered Christian during a camp visit last June, and Flood didn't let up in this recruitment in the last year.

Christian brings an overpowering force to Texas's OL

Adding the 6-foot-5 and 300-pound Christian gets the Longhorns rolling on the recruiting trail, adding big humans to the 2025 class. Texas only took a handful of offensive line commits in the 2024 cycle, so Flood and staff will be looking to add more numbers at the position in 2025.

Christian is an overwhelming force at offensive tackle for Port Neches-Groves High School. He's got violent hands and gets off the line of scrimmage fast to initiate at the point of attack. Christian has no problem finding his blocking assignment and finishing blocks.

Texas is getting a versatile offensive linemen who can finish his blocks as an interior run blocker or a reliable pass protector at the collegiate level. Christian likely projects as a guard in college, given his quickness and strength to play along the interior of the offensvie line.

The floor on Christian's skill set is high, and he could project as a multi-year contributor and potentially a starting guard at Texas a few years into the future. We could look back in a few years at Christian's three-star ranking and see how underrated he was by the major recruiting services.

Christian's commitment brings the Longhorns up to seven prospects in the 2025 class. He ranks as the No. 494 prospect nationally in the 2025 class in the 247Sports Composite, No. 30 interior offensive lineman, and No. 79 from Texas.

Texas's 2025 class ranks 22nd nationally in the 247Sports Composite.
